Movie Info

Tarzan's Greatest Adventure stars Gordon Scott in his fourth screen appearance as Edgar Rice Burrough's lord of the jungle. Jane is absent from the proceedings, Cheetah the chimp is reduced to a bit part, and Tarzan himself is given a sophisticated vocabulary (in keeping with the Burroughs original). The storyline concerns a murderous diamond hunter (Anthony Quayle), an old enemy of Tarzan's who threatens to despoil the Ape Man's jungle domain. Among the villain's entourage is a young Sean Connery, playing a nasty chap who meets a nastier demise. While perhaps not as great as the title proclaims, Tarzan's Greatest Adventure is one of the most consistently exciting entries in the Tarzan series, and worth a second glance today due to its top-drawer supporting cast.

Audience Reviews for Tarzan's Greatest Adventure

One of the best produced Tarzan's in the post Johnny Weissmuller MGM movies, Gordon Scott makes a fine Tarzan. The early appearance of Sean Connery certainly adds to the film's interest. Plenty of adventure and action, the usual crodile fights. Generally well done.
